Under any system but capitalism, where people live is a non- issue. Either people built their own homes, or in the case of socialism, homes are provided, although they may be very modest. But under the logic of capitalism people do no have a place to live because it is not profitable for the capitalists who own the land. So while 7,500 families have no place to live in Brazil, there are plenty of hotels for tourists and foreign ambassadors. Mind you, Brazil is the poster child for capitalism in South America. Capitalism is failing everywhere.
